A woman has discovered the way to find out how many one star reviews you have got on Uber as a passenger, but you might want to think twice before you find out – it could make for uncomfortable reading.
Here she is to explain how to unlock this particular Pandora’s Box of regret:
As with every single piece of potentially damning information that we receive these days, this secret was revealed to us all on TikTok.
So far, 1.8 million people have watched it, and we have to assume that a lot of these people aren’t going to be too happy with what they discover.
But, if you can’t resist the temptation, head on into the settings and reveal what the drivers really thought of you.
If you’re the sort of person who gets an Uber home drunk from places, maybe you just wanna skip past this – sometimes it is better not to know.
In the video, Emma explains: “Did you know, there's a way of finding out how many one-star reviews you have received by Uber drivers?
"Well, I'm going to show you and I'm going to ruin your day."
Here we go then.
Head on over to the privacy section of the settings, then find a button that says ‘would you like to see a summary of how you use Uber?’
Upon clicking on that section, you can scroll down and see the ratings that have been left for you by then various drivers that you have accepted a ride from.
Reviews are a key part of the Uber experience, because both users and employees have the chance to rate each other based upon the service received, and how well that service was received.
And if you have consistently bad ratings, you could potentially have your usage of the app removed.
That means that having a decent star rating is your ticket to being able to get a taxi.
Makes you think a little differently about how you behave in Ubers, and whether you might be better off giving a small tip every now and again, right?
In total, Emma has five one star rated trips, and she claims to have ‘never seen one person who does not have at least three one stars’.
The comments are obviously chock-full of people discussing their own ratings.
One said: "Whoever gave me a two star rating when all I do is sit in silence. What do you want, a performance?"
Another wrote: “I only have one but it is eating me alive. What did I do?"
So, do you dare go check out your own ratings, or are you too worried to find out?
No-one will blame you if you don’t want to check, though.
Sometimes, ignorance is bliss.
